Town Board members Monday night discussed the possibility of participating in the Cornell University 2013 Pavement Management Summer Intern Project.
The project helps municipalities implement a network-level pavement management system where a college student works with a municipal employee who is responsible for maintaining the system.
Using the Pavement Management computer program, the student collects pavement inventory and condition data and creates a five-year management plan. Students are able to gain some practical knowledge that will help them after they graduate and the town has the benefit of the completed plan.
“The student will come to us with the latest equipment and would work under the direction of Peter Ripperger,” said Town Supervisor Peter Parsons. Mr. Ripperger is submitting the application for the program by the end of this month.
